Addingrove

 

 

Site type: DMV

The location of the site in the 1968 Gazetteer and used here is located just to the north of the modern Addingrove Farm. However this is a more recent addition, and on the first edition Ordnance Survey map of 1885 Addingrove Farm and Little Aggingrove Farms are located about 400m to the north. Ridge and furrow is visible around the whole area and the HER has reported possible house platforms close to the old Addingrove Farm. [1] A possible moated site is visible to the south-east of the present farm.

There is a Domesday reference for Addingrove with a minimum population of 10. The NMR suggest a desertion between 1350-1450, however no reason for why is given. [2] It does not appear in later taxation records. A chapel is occasionally recorded, first mentioned in the twelfth century and still present in 1318. [3]

Appears in the Gazetteer of Deserted Medieval Villages known in 1968.
